Former Clash member Mick Jones surprised all doubters with this auspicious debut. For starters, instead of going entirely solo, Jones immersed himself in another band, one that reveled in a multi-racial blend of musical styles. THIS IS BIG AUDION DYNAMITE is a seminal ground-breaker for its pastiche of movie and song samples, rock guitars, and pre-techno beats; its genre-mixing ethic helped pave the way for '90s artists such as Moby. Opening with the thrilling "Medicine Show", a laundry list of ridiculous cure-alls and remedies interspersed with dialogue and music samples from the film THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY, Jones clearly raises the bar from his final Clash moments. For a guy who once had aspirations for glam rock, Jones takes a thrillingly innovative step toward the future with THIS IS BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE.

Excellent band Andy, some great tracks on this.

Wow,now thats a blast from the past,still got the vinyl,crackin album.

there's a new legacy edition 2 cd set with extended versions of ALL the tracks on the second disc, with most of them unreleased versions different to the original 12"s. there's also one outtake and one or two b sides included (but most of the b sides were instrumentals). the remixes are all taken from the time, not new ones that sound nothing like the tracks. it's a really great release. it's obviously more expensive than this, they are probably clearing out the old version

it's long been one of my favourite albums ever. i had great times seeing the band live, they were better live than they were in the studio on the later albums

Saw BAD at the old Portland Club in Birmingham at the time this was out. They were great live and E=mc2 is still one of my all time favourites.

It is a great album but the CD sounds really terrible. I usually hate it when people bang on about mastering of CDs but there is such a difference. The orignal vinyl album had a very open sound,like it was recorded in a big empty room. The CD sounds very compressed and smothered.

I'm waiting until the legacy reissue is around at a lower price.
